Reading through my blfs-support backlog i see this came up as early
as the end of November and probably earlier since Oliver Brakmann was
already complaing that it was a FAQ back then.

Jeremy reported that the patch "works smashingly". Can we get some
action on this please? I have reattached the patch for good measure.
